Remake not so good.
7 November 1999 | by (Los Angeles, CA. USA) – See all my reviews

This remake of the wonderful Topper movies and early TV series lacks a few things...plot, acting, sets. Even the talented Rue McClanahan and Jack Warden seem as though they'd rather be anywhere else! I'm afraid that Kate Jackson and her husband at the time, Andrew Stevens, don't even come close to the charm of Constance Bennett and Roland Young in the Topper movies. And as for a snappy ghostly presence, the early TV series starring the amazing husband and wife team of Anne Jefferys and Robert Sterling, has it all over this boring version.
